Avenue de St-Ouen Petite Ceinture Paris France 8th December 1985

This IFC tour was headed by SNCF 4-6-0 230G 353 and traversed all the sections of the Petite Ceinture that were still in place in 1985. Not that I really knew where I was as my knowledge of the geography of Paris was slim to non-existant at the time. This was the disused station of Avenue de Saint-Ouen in the north of Paris. HFF and keep safe.
